Till Depth Do Us Part is a song performed by Deep Cut during Splatfests. It is one of four songs that will play during Splatfest battles.

Description

Till Depth Do Us Part is a melodic drum and bass track with an intense, driving beat. The track opens with a synth unison line and drums, which is joined by bass after four bars of the intro. Frye performs the first verse along with synth arpeggios and her signature sitar in the background, followed by Shiver performing a second verse interspersed with shamisen figures. During the bridge, the idols harmonize and sing alternating solo lines accompanied by hits in the backing synthesizers and drums every other measure. The chorus continues in a similar fashion, with both idols singing the beginning of the hook and taking alternating solo lines in between. They are harmonized with a vocoder with a high formant akin to some songs by the Squid Sisters. The chorus leads into a halftime breakdown before it loops back to the intro.

Big Man wrote the "filled with Splatsville pride" song when Shiver was amazed at how Deep Cut are the toughest bandits around.[1] It is one of the five songs that can randomly play for the first two minutes of a Splatfest Battle in Splatoon 3.
